Surprising influential
14 December 2018 | by chrislawukSee all my reviews

Im sure it wasnt the 1st of its kind, but I was really surprised of how much I saw reflected in later big budget hollywood movies throughout the 80's and 90's. The cinematography, fight sequences and script are not all too bad for the most part neither. I can see aspects of Blood sport, Karate Kid, Coimmando, Rambo and various Jonn Woo movies (particularly the score) in this production. As it was made in 1981 and nobody seems to have heard of it I thought Id give it a review to show my support.
